During these rounds, 5.6 lakh children and 0.53 lakh pregnant women were vaccinated in North East regions of India.Under the National Health Mission (NHM), mobility support is provided to strengthen supportive supervision, alternate vaccine delivery from the last cold chain point at PHC/CHC to session site and incentives are provided to ASHA for mobilizing beneficiaries to the session site.
